Moth reared from gray, hairless caterpillar in spring - Hyppa xylinoides

Moth reared from gray, hairless caterpillar in spring - Hyppa xylinoides
Atlantic Mine, Houghton County, Michigan, USA
March 21, 2010
Size: 2 cm
Here is the moth with its wings spread enough to show the abdomen. I couldn't get it to hold the wings open long enough to get a picture of the hindwings, but they appeared to be light gray, somewhat translucent, and unmarked other than a pale band on the trailing edge.
